While we love our classic wines like Burgundy and Champagne, we also love a good hidden gem, and this bottling by Domaine Grand’Cour definitely constitutes a hidden gem. I mean, how often do you get the chance to drink premium Swiss wine? Hailing from the AOC of Geneva in Switzerland, this lovely white wine is a blend of Riesling, Kerner, and Sauvignon Blanc, all aged in concrete tank to preserve freshness. All grapes are meticulously hand harvested - a lengthy process that is conducted by several passes through each vineyard to allow maximum control over grape ripeness and quality, but clearly pays off. Winemaker Jean-Pierre Pelegrin took over control of the estate shortly before he turned thirty, and is responsible for turning the estate from merely a grape growing production (which his family has tended going back to 1617) into a fully functional Domaine. He has both renovated old sites and planted new vines, and is very much responsible for the reputation that Grand’Cour enjoys in the region, as one of the top estates in Geneva and arguably in Switzerland as a whole. He prefers to operate in a non-interventionalist fashion but still produces a wine that is beautifully fresh and clean. This is a great full bodied alternative to white Burgundy or a ripe Alsatian wine. It shows a beautiful mix of fruit character, from tart grapefruit to ripe peach, limestone, lemongrass, white flowers, and is definitely a showstopper wine you’ll want to pour for yourself and your friends. Lastly, this estate has been recognized by French restaurant guide Gault & Millau as perennially the top estate in AOC Geneva as well as all of Switzerland. - MVT
